Part-timers eligible for Sunday premium pay

Part-time federal employees are now eligible for an additional 25 percent above their basic pay rate for work done on Sundays, according to a final rule published today.
According to the OPM website, "An employee is entitled to 25 percent of his or her rate of basic pay for work performed during a regularly scheduled basic 8-hour tour of duty that begins or ends on a Sunday."
The new rule rose from a 2009 U.S. Court of Appeals decision that found part-time federal employees were entitled to the same right to Sunday premium pay as full-time employees were. Fathauer v. U.S. involved five part-time meteorologists who sued the government for denying them premium pay for work on Sundays.
The Sunday premium pay policy applies to General Schedule employees and "certain other white-collar civilian federal employees," according to OPM.
The final rule is effective Sept. 22.
